The hit game Grand Theft Auto III is now available for Android and iOS devices. Gamers will take to the streets of Liberty City to complete a variety of missions with a large cast of seedy characters, just like in the original version released 10 years ago on PlayStation 2. Rockstar Games promises hours of gameplay, updated graphics, HD quality and gameplay that has been optimized for touchscreen devices. Grand Theft Auto III is available in the Android Market and in the iTunes App Store now for $4.99.
Rockstar Games announced on Tuesday that Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary Edition will land on select Android and iOS devices on December 15th for $4.99. The company said the hit game will be available on:
Apple iOS Devices: iPad 1 & 2, iPhone 4 & 4S, iPod touch 4th Generation.
Android Phones: HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, T-Mobile G2x.
Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive.
Users appear to be a bit disappointed that Rockstar isn’t releasing the game to a larger selection of Android smartphones, given the huge number of powerful devices currently available. Worse still, Joystiq said the touchscreen controls weren’t very good on an early build — bit the game takes place in Liberty City, just like the original Grand Theft Auto III, and we’re looking forward to checking it out on December 15th.
